I've been listening to 70 in chronological order. Amazing year. But this show is not really up to snuff. The guitars are out of tune in places and the energy is just not there.

Given the scarcity of SBDs from this period I strongly recommend trying the auds and applying some EQ. For example, 10/24 is a fantastic show and if you tweak it it's quite listenable.

Set one was my first Dead Show/Psychedelic experience and now is the date ingrained in my memory as the day I became a Deadhead. Several dozen live shows and a few hundred tapes, cds and LPs later, it is still the show where I peaked for Uncle John, wondered how the bearded guy could play for both the Dead and the NRPS, and wished I had gotten ($2) tickets for all four shows in the run. I know that my dorm room served as a crash pad for several out of towners who came staggering in after the second set at around 3 in the morning. My only disappointment in the SBD here is that it runs out in the middle of a smokin' "Rider". (Can I give more than 5 stars to offset the ridiculous 3s?)

Subject: Good Show
For some reason the sound quality drops quite a bit between discs 1 & 2 and continues throughout, enough for me to stop and forward looking for a return to first disc quality that never happens. The show itself is typically great but the sound lacks bigtime. 4 for show, 2 for sound

Weir's "Truckin" vocals in the early show must be heard. The wheels come off during the Sunshine Daydream portion of S. Mag., which is typical for this vintage. They never seemed to be able to get out of it gracefully. Show catches fire with Good Lovin'/Drums, with a nice Cumberland for good measure. Late show is OK, but they just sound weary. Sound quality is spotty, but pretty good overall. I'm keeping the early show, and cherry-picking the late one. Suit yourself. Early 4 stars, Late 3 stars.

Subject: Solid show, decent sound
Considering it's SBD originated the sound is arguably a bit lacking, but altold a good show, pretty tight, worth the download (as most are; how many here are simply not worth it at all?).
The 3 stars is relative, it's a good show.
